|“||All magic comes with a price.||„|
Rumplestiltskin, also nicknamed Rumple, is one of the main characters of Once Upon a Time. Rumple was once a normal man turned evil by the Dark One's magic. After losing his son, he became obsessed with making deals, and, more so, collecting in on them, most of which aided his ultimate goal of being reunited with Baelfire. In the town of Storybrooke, Maine, after the casting of the Dark Curse, Rumplestiltskin lives as Mr. Gold, the enigmatic owner of the local pawn shop, as well as the town itself. Gold remains aware of his life before the curse and plays a key role in breaking it so that he can leave town and find Bae, with his need to satisfy revenge often getting in his own way and leading to events such as him providing the town with magic, which he views as power. However, unforeseen circumstances lead to Baelfire's death, and Rumple is left at a loss. His thirst for power could be his undoing, threatening dearly the relationship he has with his true love Belle.

But, to his disappointment, the dagger magically returned to him, proving that the wish could not be granted.

Attack Potency: At least Street level physically (Able to break a neck with a single hand). At least Town level (Superior to Zelena, Regina, Emma, and Ingrid), likely Mountain level with magic (Superior to Pan and his Shadow). Island level with the Fairy Godmother's wand | At least Wall level physically (Adding the physical power of every Dark One who ever lived to his own would result in this level. Also physically harmed Henry Mills). At least Island level with magic (One of the most powerful beings in the OUAT verse. Stronger than Jafar, who could wipe Agrabah off this earth; Ingrid, who froze all of Arendelle; The Evil Queen, who created Storybrooke with the Dark Curse; Peter Pan, who had control over all Neverland; Merlin, the first wizard and the Black Fairy. The Author admitted that he was the most dangerous of all characters of the storybook. Even respected, and somehow feared, by a deity like Hades. Much more powerful than virtually any amount of fairy dust, which even with a small amount could do this). Can ignore conventional durability with Heart Extraction, Transmutation, Fire Manipulation, Petrification, Smite, Death Manipulation and others abilities | Likely Planet level (Used the Olympian Crystal to become one with all the magic of Storybrooke, and as such should at least be comparable, if not superior, to the genies, who are capable of creating entire alternative worlds). Can ignore conventional durability with Heart Extraction, Transmutation, Existence Erasure and others abilities
Striking Strength: At least Street Class | At least Wall Class
Durability: At least Building level physically, likely higher (Far more durable than Zelena). At least Mountain level with shields and protective charms (The Blue Fairy's full power did nothing to his shield. Superior to Pan) | At least Town level physically (Superior to the Black Fairy, who withstood the full power of Zelena without much trouble). Likely Island level with shields and protective charms (His defensive magic should be somehow comparable to his offensive, as they share the same source. Also superior to the fairies, which created a shield capable of holding him back for a while) | Potentially Planet level with shields and protective charms (Drains power from the Olympian Crystal, which needs the full power of a Olympian god to be broken and/or repaired)
Stamina: Extremely high (The power of the Darkness keeps the Dark One energized and thus they don't need sleep and don't suffer from sleep deprivation)
Range: Several dozen meters with Fire Manipulation, Telekinesis, Transmutation, Energy Projection, Absorption, Sealing, Immobilization and Sleep Inducement; At least Planetary with Teleportation
Standard Equipment: The Dark One's Dagger, Excalibur, The Sorcerer's hat, Magic Gauntlet, Crystal Ball, Memory Potions, True Love Potion, Dark Curse, Pandora's Box, Fairy Godmother's wand, Black Fairy's wand, Magic Beans, the Olympian Crystal, Several Portions and other Items
Intelligence: Genius level magical knowledge (He has an extreme knowledge and understanding of spells, potions, and other topics related to magic, allowing him to do impossible things for common magic users. Created many spells and charms and was also able to put True Love into a bottle. Could see the difference between a true and a false magical page when nobody else could). Genius in others areas too (A very influent lawyer - as Mr. Gold - and a very clever and smart detective - as Weaver. Able to see people intentions and lies without much thinking. Tricked many of the series' characters)
Weaknesses: The Dark One's Dagger (The Dark One is magically bound to obey the commands of whosoever holds the Dark One's Dagger and can be summoned by it, and, it is the only weapon capable of killing them, however, whosoever kills the Dark One, becomes the new Dark One), Limits of Magic (Rumple cannot change the past, revive the dead, or make someone fall in True Love - although he can break these limits sometimes), Squid Ink (It can paralyze any magical being or user - although it no longer works on him with the same efficiency as before), The Price of Magic (Even the Dark One is subject to the Price of Magic, one of its most fundamental laws), Lack of Magic (Both the Dagger's and the Dark One's powers are useless in an area with no magic in it, rendering the Dagger a worthless knife, and the most powerful known wizard a mortal man), Enchanted Cuffs (As shown onscreen, cuffs that are enchanted to block magic have the same effect on him as anyone else - although it's unknown if these cuffs still work on him), Olympian Crystal (Has the power to erase any being in the OUAT universe from existence)
- Heart-ripping: Rumplestiltskin/Mr. Gold can magically penetrate a person's chest and remove the hearts of other living beings without killing them and use them to control the owner or kill them by crushing the heart.
- Transmutation: Rumplestiltskin/Mr. Gold can change an object's or person's form/appearance in a variety of ways. He is able to casually spin straw into gold or transform people into objects and animals in an instant.
- Teleportation: He is able to transport himself and others within a realm, as long as the exact location is known. Furthermore he can transport objects and persons even from far away. Can trap persons in the Infinite Forest, like the Evil Queen.
- Magical Immobilization: Mr. Gold can magically immobilize several people at once, with a wave of his hand or a thought.
- Telekinetic Choke: Rumplestiltskin can use his telekinesis to crush an opponent's throat. He usually uses this ability in order to make people shut up.
Key: Base | As the "Ultimate Dark One" | When merged with Storybrooke's magic
